It's my birthday!

WHAT AN AMAZING DAY!! I am so blessed! The day started off with a beautiful card from my each of my incredible children. Atira made me a picture frame that is so lovely. Scott had already bought me a GPS system, we picked it out the day is so cool. Just before we headed out the door my sweet friend came zipping by to drop off a warm batch of cinnamon rolls, can you believe it???? Who does that? Good friends who are a gift from God, that's who. We drove off to Edmonds to go on the Meadowdale Beach Hike.  A most beautiful hike, gorgeous surroundings and when you reach the end of the trail it opens up to the beach. It is a like a special gift when you have arrived. While we went we had brought with us the coordinates for our first geocaching experience. SUCH FUN! This one was not super easy as you had to decipher some clues, do a little mathematics and then receive the next coordinates. It was great! We ended up making a mistake, but down at the beach we found the clue we needed and SUCCESS! We did it! We had the right coordinates, we headed back to the trail and searched for about 10 minutes and found our cache! WOWY! Jordan picked out a French coin from the box and Atira snagged a beautiful bookmark and a travel bug. We of course left some new trinkets for the next person to find. We signed the book and headed out! After a quick stop by Scott's work we were on our way home! Once home we started preparing for our evenings event, a sukkah party. We invited some friends to come and celebrate God's feast day and it was such an incredible joy! Several friends came, sang and danced with us, read scriptures and of course ate, ate, ate! We sat out by the fire pit reading the bible, discussing scripture and sharing with one favorite times. The kids wore glow sticks, ran amuck and had a fabulous time! I am so thankful to have had such an incredible and memorable birthday.
